Unchanging Word Bible Podcast
Let’s continue in Matthew 26 at verse 36.
The Lord Jesus is presented here in Matthew as one
who is praying to His Father, asking that the cup of suffering the cross might be removed from Him.
Jesus prayed for this removal only once.
The next 2 times Jesus prayed, His prayer was to confirm His willingness to do the will of God.
Dr. Mitchell points out that it is here in Jesus’
prayer in the garden of Gethsemane that the victory
was won. Jesus went to the cross already knowing
the battle had been won.
In Hebrews 5:7 says that our Lord’s earnest
prayers were heard by God who was able to save Him
out of death. Jesus was assured of His
resurrection after death.
This was the joy that was set before Him.
